LES SANS CULOTTES
THE CARVELS • JACQUES LE COQUE

The "seven-headed beast from the hard-scrabble streets of Menilmontant" and "those frilly Parisian underthings," Les Sans Culottes borrowed their name from the ill-clad (i.e., long-trousered) citizen-soldiers of the French Revolution. The band's sound is a melange of Francophone '60s girl group and the Kinks... "We are the masters of the French rock'n'roll; all others are but the slave!"

The Carvels are led by Lynne Von Pang, former front woman of seminal NYC scum-rock blues-punk band Da Willys and the tight, hard-rocking outfit Trick Babys. Lynne's voice is legendary on the lower east side rock scene, and she has shared the stage with legends like Sylvain Sylvain (NY Dolls), Clem Burke (Blondie), Wayne Kramer (MC5) and Walter Lure (The Heartbreakers). Along with Lynne's vocals and rhythm guitar, the sound is filled out by four top-notch seasoned musicians - co-founder Brian Morgan on lead guitar, Steve Pang on drums, Steven Fallon on bass and David Spinley on saxophone.
